With clear skies and light winds temperatures have fallen to the upper single digits in the Clifton area to even some below zero readings in the normally colder areas.
Today temperatures will rise to the low 30s but another cold front be crossing through this afternoon accompanied by some scattered snow showers that may give us a coating of snow. Winds will increase this afternoon with some gusts up to 30 MPH.
Behind this front a reinforcing surge of Arctic air will cover the area tonight with record low temperatures with readings well down in the single digits, wind chills will fall to well below zero.
On Friday despite “significant” sunshine temperatures will only rise to the mid 20s.
Dry and not quite as frigid Saturday through most of the day on Sunday.
A winter storm will affect the area Sunday night through Monday night, still too early to pinpoint snow amounts as what falls may be mixed with sleet, rain and freezing rain. At any rate be prepared for some travel problems.
Much below temperatures will continue to at least the middle of next week.
